Larkfleet await decision on resubmitted new homes plans

Posted 9 August 2013

Housebuilder Larkfleet Homes is still waiting to learn if it will be able to go-ahead with plans to develop a small collection of new homes on a site in Morton. 

Having already had a proposal to construct 34 homes refused in March, the developer has returned with revised plans for just 14 residential properties on land off Bourne Road.

The parish council objected to the original application because it was concerned about the impact additional traffic would have on the village, the lack of available local school places and concern about provision of a safe crossing on the A15.

The new plan, which is being considered by South Kesteven District Council, would see the new homes built across one acre of land.

Larkfleet's associate director of strategic projects, Tim Slater, commented: "Larkfleet's previous application at Morton was for 34 homes. 

"The most recent application is for a reduced number of homes [14] on a greatly reduced site area.

"The reduced site area and reduced housing numbers have addressed the key objections in relation to visual and traffic impact voiced in respect of the previous scheme.

"If approved, the 14 properties in Morton will go some way to meeting the need for new housing in the area."
